Bats and Vampires and Ghosts, Oh My!

Over at Just InkLined Digital Stamps they are having a Halloween challenge (have I mentioned, I LOVE Halloween)  Well they came out with some fabulous new Halloween digis and I could not resist.  I managed to work 4 of them into this card. I had so much fun with my last Criss Cross card, I decided to make another.


I began by creating the card first using papers from my HUGE Halloween stash.  Then using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I combined Vlad, Trick or Treat, and Halloween Kitty, added a gradient background and then printed them onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Aren't they fabulous images and so much fun to color with my Copic markers.  I added a little bat sticker, thought he fit in perfectly.

Last step was to create the sentiment for the front. Again using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I used a font called Blood of Dracula (how appropriate), added Batty and printed it onto Cryogen.  I airbrushed around the edges before removing it from my die.  Too cute, huh?  Finished size is 6" square.

Sandy: could we bribe you to do a tutorial on grouping all these separate images together? I'm new to Photoshop Elements and still struggling to learn. This card rocks! C2
